Coalition for Higher Ambition, a unique gathering of businesses, investor groups, trade unions, local and regional authorities, and NGOs (of which NAPE is a member) published a statement to urge the Commission to come forward with a proposal to increase the EU’s climate target to at least -55% of GHG emissions reductions by 2030 compared to 1990 levels within the first 100 days of their mandate.

The statement comes ahead of the European Commission’s announcement on the European Green Deal, with its key element of the enhancement of the EU’s 2030 climate target. The new Commission president, Ursula Von der Leyen is expected to present a comprehensive programme of the European Green Deal soon.
